Cat Eyes Graph

01 Jan

Sorry it took so long for me to post this! Just been so busy lately and haven’t had a chance to post these!

So first and foremost, here’s the final product!

I made it as a Christmas present for my boyfriend’s sister-in-law, who LOVES cats (though I wish I hadn’t done it in garter because it doesn’t have as clean lines, but you live and learn!). I decided to make the graph too, to make it a little more personal. And because I like finding free graphs and this was an easy one to make, I decided to offer this one up! Note: The blanket was made holding one strand of Wool Ease Chunky and Homespun together for the “fur”, and then Jiffy held double for the eyes (all the stores I went to were out of the Chunky colors I wanted!).

So, without further ado, here’s the graph!

I just did it in excel (it’s easier for me than photoshop), though I may eventually use PS to tidy up the picture. For now, though, I just wanted to be sure to share it! EDIT: The picture has been tidied up in Photoshop!

Enjoy, and I look forward to seeing how the chart has been used!

    I shared this on my FB page because I thought it was so great! Do you mind telling me how many stitches you started with & how long you knitted it. It’s just a perfect size for a throw. Thanks for sharing the graph.

    I answered this on Ravelry as well (my apologies for not putting this info into the post!), so I’m just going to copy/paste for those of you not on Ravelry (but really, if you do knitting/crochet/spinning, you should join since it’s free!):

    I’m not positive, but I think I added 10 or 15 stitches on either side of the chart, so either 69 or 79 stitches. I wish I could remember to tell you, but I didn’t take exact measurements. I know I used most of a ball of Wool Ease chunky before I started the eyes and had used almost 2 full skeins total of Wool Ease and Homespun when I finished. I just eyeballed it to see if it was the size I wanted, but my boyfriend guesstimates it was about 3’ x 4’ in size.
